I have a question which nobody I asked could answer it before. I have had OCD since my early childhood. First it was more obvious but then mostly in my mind but severe. I am also very suspicious about being bipolar. I am now 30.
I don’t know why while being in a sexual relationship everything is fine and it seems OCD has gone.I mean while I have a boyfriend everything is fine. Is it s.th about hormones results in OCD ?
i doubt it has to do with hormones. It may be that you are happier and less stressed when in a good relationship and there is less opportunity for OCD to bother you. when people are unhappy, depressed, or stressed, OCD is often more troublesome. all best wishes,
